Okat is the solo project of award-winning Arizona musician Tyler Griffin. Drawing inspiration from minimalism, ambient, and drone, Okat focuses on dynamic melodies juxtaposed against drowning, tonal climaxes, breaking through genre labels to build music that is equally warm and yet somehow chilling.

Up to date [ Okat ] has released two titles [ Driftwoods ] that came out August 2011 and the most recent [ Sable ] which came out June [ 2012 ]. Both releases are exceptionally well done based on the quoted tags. Although Driftwoods is more of a mini EP type, 3 tracks with a total duration of 09minutes but you still might want to give both a thorough listen starting with the latest one [ Sable ]. TOTALLY WORTHY.

Review for Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
